 I am in love with the idea of beautifying our area with spontaneous yarn as previously mentioned here so as soon as I saw this my mind began racing with just what I could contribute! I'm already starting to whip up some roses to adorn a lucky light post. But I don't want to spoil the surprise, so here's just a GLIMPSE.
